Handmade Christmas Card: Greetings From Santa

By | September 3, 2016

Check out this handmade Christmas card to find out if you’re on Santa’s Naughty or Nice list this year.   😉

Greetings From Santa Handmade Christmas CardThis handmade Christmas card today features the new Greetings From Santa stamp set (clear-mount or wood-mount) from the recently realeased Holiday Catalog.  Yes, it’s finally here!

I used a few Post-It Notes to create the snow banks by tearing the edges for a more natural snowdrift look, then sponged various colors over the sky and the banks of snow.

And although you can’t see it in the picture, I added some delicate touches of the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush  on the snowflakes and along the snow banks for just a little extra shimmer.  I then popped up Santa’s Naughty or Nice list using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Can you find your name on the list? ♥♥♥

Aside from the Basic Black Archival I used to stamp the scroll of names, the ink color combination used for this handmade card idea is shown below.

You can pick up this cute stamp set alone or in the Greetings From Santa clear-mount or wood-mount bundle that comes with the darling coordinating Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies.  They each work beautifully alone, but are even more dramatic together… plus you’ll save 10% when you purchase them together!

Will you be getting your homemade Christmas cards done in time to send out this year? It’s really not too early to get started. According to a recent survey I conducted, August and September are the most popular months for beginning your holiday stamping, followed very closely by October.
